Default A Big Thank You too all Members and The Club

This is for all the help and support I have received over the last 16 yrs of ownership which has helped me keep the car on the road as a daily driver.
Unfortunately my wife had a senior moment,mounted the kerb and crashed the car(2001 Connie 2.5 KV6) into a large public artwork,writing the car off and my no claims bonus!!.The car was in great condition(190,000 KLMS)and not a spec of rust.
Best Wishes for the Future

Hopefully, the car kept her safe, which is the most important thing. It's hard to give up our cars, especially in such circumstances. best of luck for the future.

Sorry to hear the news but at least the car done its job and kept your wife safe. Donít be a stranger, pop in from time to time to let us know what car you have to replace the Rover with.

All the best for the future.

Dan, as has been said, it's good that your wife is safe, I am sure you have had a bunch of mixed emotions.

Also, as Flying Banana has said, do visit the forum, as you will have information and experiences that will benefit others.

Good luck, Fred (planenut)

Sad end for the car but the right outcome in every other aspect (except your NCB takes a hit). Stay with us, the Club are a great bunch of enthusiasts/gurus

Sorry to hear your bad news. Bonus point that your wife is ok. See if you can keep the car and sell any spares, then weigh it in .
